The Atlanta rapper continues to get called upon in the world of film following impressive turns in Marvel’s Ant-Man, Get Hard, Takers, Dolemite Is My Name and many more.
He recently starred in Genius: Aretha, Nat Geo’s popular anthology from Imagine Television and Fox 21 TV Studios. He played Ken Cunningham, the fashion designer and one-time lover of Aretha Franklin.
Billed as the first, definitive and only authorized scripted limited series on Franklin’s life, Genius: Aretha arrived as an eight episode series in March 2021, after pushed back from its original date due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Meanwhile, T.I. has been catching some heat in recent weeks after a resurfaced clip from an August 2020 episode of his expediTIously podcast sees him admitting to once snitching on his dead cousin Toot to avoid jail time.
The King of the South explained that the scenario took place before his music career took off. As the Atlanta rhymer noted, he was running a hustle with Toot involving stolen upscale clothes when they were pulled over by cops, who discovered a gun in Tip’s possession.
Toot was murdered during the court case, and at the urging of his lawyer — and with Toot’s alleged posthumous blessing — Tip avoided incarceration by claiming the gun belonged to his cousin.
“We caught those gun cases, Toot died. My lawyer said, ‘Well, you know, I could make everything go away if it was Toot’s, it was Tremel’s,’” T.I. said. “After he had passed, I had a talk with him. Toot said, ‘I’ll take all the charges you got! If you can walk away free and put it on me, goddamn right! ‘Cause I’ll be damned if they gon’ come and muthafucking extradite me from here!’”
Birdman’s brother Terrance “Gangsta” Williams later shared his thoughts on Tip’s confession, comparing it to the time he providing information on dead friends to prosecutors in regards to two murders.
Tip’s son King Harris also weighed in, clapping back at those calling his father a snitch. “Y’all could tell me I’m wrong or whatever. Y’all throwing out the wrong words,” King said during an Instagram Live last week.
“Look, listen. A snitch, a rat, a mouse is you putting somebody… If you put somebody else in trouble and you get out. Somebody has to do time and shit like that for you [to be a snitch].”
